Looks like Jagr is leaving the NHL for Russian team Avangard Omsk. Wonder how much they had to throw at him? The new Continental League seems serious about trying to lure some NHL talent.

With Bettman at the helm, I can see the League folding in 10 years (hope I'm wrong).

With the US economy the way it is, I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot more players follow this route.

Rumor is 35 mil for 2 yrs, possibly tax free.
